Two Medieval motets: The first based on the street cries of Paris, and the second about the virtues of singing and drinking


Come to Paris for the good life with jolly companions! In both the morning and evening you will find fresh bread to eat; drink good, clear wine and feast on all sorts of meats and fish, also fresh strawberries and ripe blackberries! Make merry with honorable ladies!

If you want to sing, you must drink! Good wine draws you to bed, and bad knocks you out; both make your friends sing. When I sing in a clear voice, I sing with a clear heart: If you want to sing, you must drink!
